nice place, just beside Trinity college. The wifi connection isn't so reliable, others are all quite good.


I loved staying at The Times Hostel. The staff is very helpful and ridiculously nice. The location is perfect, in front of Trinity College. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe at the area. There were lockers in the room, and breakfast available for 3 Euros. Also, free ice cream! Every bed has its plug. The room was really big, the common area too. It was great.


The best hostel I've stayed in!

We spent almost no time actually in the hostel in Dublin, but what time we did spend was quite enjoyable. The staff was quite hospitable and helpful, the security was top-notch, and the rooms were quiet. I'd definitely recommend this hostel.


Plugs not working, tiny sink which floods the bathroom, wardroab without shelves, squeeky uncomfortable bed, sulfury smelling water (only from sink tap, not shower), no wifi repeater for upper floors thus basically no wifi


Comfortable beds, good vibe, really wonderful staff. Loads of outlets in the rooms and reliable wifi which is always a plus. Could be cleaner.


Late night staff were friendly and accommodating, Could use a little more common room space--proximity to next door bar pretty awesome! Good times
